If you are planning on traveling, the Northwest Interagency Coordination Center fire map shows where there are active fires and their status so you can prepare accordingly.
This is also a good time to go over fire safety plans with your household and place of work. Check out Home Fire Safety plan by The American Red Cross for more information.
